Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa has written a bill to prohibit these refunds for amnestied illegals. He says that “the tax code shouldn’t reward those who broke our immigration laws.” Well, of course not. We’re already giving illegal aliens a massive reward by granting amnesty.
Let’s note that Obama’s amnesty program does not require any of the illegals to pay back taxes. That’s ridiculous enough, but it’s even more insane to turn around and offer them refunds for taxes they didn’t pay. It’s apparently not enough that amnesty will entitle illegals to countless government freebies, including healthcare, all paid for by law-abiding Americans. Now we’ll be giving the illegals a refund for the taxes they didn’t pay.
I don’t want this happening, and I hope Senator Grassley’s bill passes. But more important, I don’t want amnesty happening. These bonus tax refunds are only the tip of the iceberg of the heavy costs laid on American taxpayers by Obama’s amnesty. The American people oppose amnesty and our lawmakers should listen to the people.
